Nope, we’re not kidding. TNT has given a pilot order to Scent of the Missing, about an intrepid mystery solver and her pooch.

Based on a book with the same title, the project is produced by CSI executive producer Carol Mendelsohn. Scent follows a woman and her trained rescue McGruff who can, among other things, go fetch murder victims. Official logline: “An adrenaline junkie leader of a canine search-and-rescue team assists various law enforcement agencies with her best friend and partner, a golden retriever.”
